814 Naval Air Squadron
814 Naval Air Squadron is better known throughout the Royal Navy as 'The Flying Tigers' due to its distinctive badge. The Squadron currently operates the world's leading Anti-Submarine Warfare helicopter, the Merlin HM Mk1 from RNAS Culdrose in Cornwall.
Embracing the Squadron’s motto: ‘In hoc signo vinces’ (meaning ‘In this sign you will conquer’), 814 NAS is a high readiness, globally deployable unit tasked with flying from ships and/or air bases around the world to provide protection to the Fleet from surface and sub-surface threats, or to support maritime security operations. If required, The Flying Tigers can also be called upon for search and rescue (SAR) and the transportation of stores, equipment and personnel to ships, submarines and to locations ashore.
